Red face Knew it wouldn't last....

Last week, heck this past Tuesday it was nice, warm (in the 40's), snow was melting..... you know where this is going already don't you?

Yep, today and through the night we should get about a foot of new snow. Blowing like crazy too. Nice drift on my back door, steps look like a ramp of snow. Drift up against the garage. Could've cleared it but, its just going to blow back. Think its a work from home day tomorrow. I do love my 24" 2-stage snow-blower though......

Only 30 days until spring and I was sailing on April 15th last year....

cb - you're killin' me dude. I have to agree with n0. MOVE!!!

You Easties crying about ice. You live in MINNE-FREAKIN-SOTA!

I do have to toss you some props though. We "lake sailors" have to stick together.

PS - Every time I look at your avvy, I think you've got a swan-looking-sock-puppet on your right hand barking out orders. The funny thing is....you're listening.

LOL Smack, it does look like something like that doesn't it?


Can't quite move yet as I got kids in school, though, I do have a long range plan to get to the warmth. Plus, the summers hear are pretty awesome. We have trees here and real lakes....

Was only 13-15 inches of snow, so not too bad.

I have the same size snow blower here in the People's Republic of Maryland. A few days ago it hit 70 degrees, tonight weatherman is calling for mixed rain and snow. Florida winters are in the forecast for me next year--gonna' get my lard-butt outta' here when the temperature gets lower than my age. My new philosophy in life is to "Never expose your body to a temperature lower than your age!" Good rule to live by.

Cheers,

Gary

You have a strange idea of what constitutes "warm"...

Anything above 0 C is warm.

3-4 C is shirtsleeve weather.
